The Sioux are a purple civilization in Civilization II. They are led by Sitting Bull (male) and Sacajawea (female), following a balanced personality.

Overview[]

Color[]

The Sioux are a purple civilization, and act seventh in turn order. A game featuring the Sioux will not involve the Indians or Mongols.

Leaders[]

The default Sioux male leader is Sitting Bull (c. 1831–1890), a chief of the Lakota Sioux responsible for numerous raids against American forts, railroad surveyors, and settlers in the Dakotas and Montana. His most famous victory was at the Little Bighorn. He fled to exile in Canada before joining Buffalo Bill's Wild West show with 20 of his warriors. When his arrest was ordered to prevent him from joining the Ghost Dance movement, his supporters opened fire on the police, but two Lakota policemen shot him dead.

The default female leader is Sacajawea, a variant spelling of Sacagawea (1788–1812). Sacagawea was a Lemhi Shoshone kidnapped as a teenager by the Hidatsa and sold as a "wife" to a French Canadian trapper. She and her "husband" worked as interpreters, guides, and assistants to the American Lewis & Clark expedition. They eventually settled in St. Louis.

Titles[]

Sioux leaders feature two unique government titles: a Despotism Despot is known as a "Chief", and a Monarchy Monarch is styled a "Great Chief".

Personality[]

The Sioux AI is balanced: it is neither overtly aggressive nor pacifist, and toes a middle line on city development and research.

Cities[]

Modding[]

The Sioux are defined at Line 21 of the @LEADERS section of Rules.txt. Leader portraits are stored in Images 31 (GIFS/240) (male) and 52 (GIFS/261) (female) in mk.dll; their herald file is HRLDSIO.AVI.
